Tetig 500 Mg Injection 5 Ml
Tetanus Toxoidis used for the prevention, control and treatment of tetanus or lockjaw. Tetanus is caused by Clostridium tetani. It is characterised severe muscle spasm which results in locking of jaws. Due to lockjaw the victim cannot open the mouth or swallow.
How does the drug work?
Tetanus toxoid provides artificial active immunity against Clostridium tetani. Tetanus toxoids consist of dead or weak strands of Clostridium tetani, the disease causing bacteria. When these bacteria reach the body they activate the immune system of the human body. The immune system produces antibodies which can kill the Clostridium tetani. Therefore, it helps the human body to recognise the disease causing agent and produce the antibodies quickly against the bacteria when it invades the human body.
What are the common side effect?
The common side effects of tetanus toxoid are shoulder or arm pain, headache, ringing in the ears, vomiting, diarrhoea, seizures, and redness, swelling, bleeding or pain at the site of injection.
